I have been wanting to make this for ages! I saw it on the wonderful Play Create Explore, and immediately planned it in for some summer sensory play! We finally got round to it this week and it did not let us down!! Read on!Play Create Explore.
While we prepared the dough we also dyed some short grain rice 3 different colours to make some 'sprinkles'! We did this with food colouring and a little vinegar.
This was our strawberry ice cream dough mid mixing! It looks just like raspberry ripple!
I split the dough in half and coloured one pink (which also smelled like strawberry due to the conditioner) and for the other half I mixed in cocoa powder, so it looked and smelled like chocolate. Amazing!
To play with this dough we bought out our Ice Cream pretend play set. This provided all the tools and props to make this great sensory play work as brilliant pretend play too!
I hope you enjoyed this activity! Thanks for stopping by!
